* WrongGenreSavvy: As he's not aware that the heroes are actors, he assumes that they can tell him what the Omega 13 does, and when Jason says he doesn't know, he assumes he lying under the belief that no captain could be that clueless about his own ship.

Added DiffLines:

* HeartIsAnAwesomePower: While not discussed in the movie, one advantage to having the computer respond to only one officer is that it serves as a security precaution (in case, say, an invading force takes over the ship, as eventually happens with Sarris) and in some respects she is actually the most indispensable member of the crew, though admittedly it's probably rather dumb to have ''only'' one officer have this responsibility.

* AscendedExtra: From no name redshirt [[spoiler: to chief of security]] in-show, of course.

* AscendedExtra: InUniverse. From no name redshirt [[spoiler: to chief of security]] in-show, of course.


Added DiffLines:

* HisNameReallyIsBarkeep: He is even more freaked out than the rest of the cast that they have just been transported aboard an alien ship and as he is the only one the Thermians do not recognise, he just introduces himself as "Guy", making the audience think for the whole movie that he was too shocked to even remember his own name and in-keeping with the fact that he is supposedly just a disposable RedShirt. However, the credits for the in-universe reboot of the shot reveal that his name really ''is'' Guy; his full name is [[spoiler: Guy Fleegman.]]


Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: His name is Guy, in keeping with him being just a random extra nobody really knows. In fact, it's not until the end of the movie that we learn "Guy" actually is his name at all, rather than just everyone calling him "guy" because they don't know his real name (he introduces himself as Guy, but at the time he was having a FreakOut so it seems like he was just panicking).

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: To William Shatner, the show's main cast member who has an inflated ego and is shocked to discover how the rest of the cast dislikes him for it.

* BridgeBunny: Her original role was to stand on the bridge, [[MaleGaze lean toward the camera,]] and "repeat everything the computer says".
** To the point that the computer only responds to her questions!
* CaptainErsatz: A white, cranky version of Uhura.

* {{Badass}}: All those years of rolling around a soundstage covered in dirt really paid off.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: In his first fight with the heroes, he opts to drive them into a minefield which causes them to be severely crippled. Later, [[spoiler:he disguises himself as Fred with an image inducer, sneaks onto the ship and kills pretty much everyone [[{{Irony}} except Guy.]] This is only undone by the Omega 13, which he had no way of knowing about]].
